Description

A newly edited, single-volume commemorative edition of The Path to Power and The Downing Street Years; this is Margaret Thatcher in her own words.

Combining her memoirs The Path to Power and The Downing Street Years, this definitive account of Margaret Thatcher’s life is published as a one-volume commemorative edition for the first time. Margaret Thatcher was the towering figure of late-20th-century British politics. Now, following her death, in 2013, this is the story of her remarkable life, in her own words.

Beginning with her upbringing in Grantham, she goes on to describe her entry into Parliament. Rising through the ranks of this man’s world, she led the Conservative Party to victory in 1979, becoming Britain's first woman prime minister.

Offering a riveting firsthand account of the critical moments of her premiership - the Falklands War, the miners' strike, the Brighton bomb, and her unprecedented three election victories, the book reaches a gripping climax with an hour-by-hour description of her dramatic final days in 10 Downing Street. Margaret Thatcher's frank and compelling autobiography stands as a powerful testament to her influential legacy.

FAULTY EDITING - JUMPS FROM 1979 TO 1992

Where does The Autobiography rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The file is faulty and jumps at 4:40:45 seconds from 1979 to 1992. I have downloaded this onto a different device separately and the same problem occurs. Please rectify it Audible.

Too Abridged

An interesting overview, but so abridged you don't learn much. Audible needs an unabridged version.

Monetarism enters practical politics - great read

Very interesting to learn Mrs. Thatcher's views first hand. She was a very talented speaker and orator
